Create "Casual Collisions"
Pair people in your office to get coffee or lunch together on a weekly or monthly basis. This helps your team strengthen bonds and retain a sense of intimacy as your company scales.

Keep Remote Employees Connected
If you have a distributed team use Donut to regularly pair people from your whole company to get coffee or have a video chat ("virtual" coffee) to keep employees in all offices connected and engaged.
Connect people across different groups and departments to foster more cross-team collaboration and help spark creativity and improve productivity.
Integrate New Hires
Ensure new hires feel welcome and get to know their coworkers by matching them with a weekly coffee or lunch buddy during their first few months. This is a great way for new employees to get acclimated to the company, and get to know people from other teams or offices!
Facilitate networking opportunities by pairing people within a company affinity- or interest-based group, or a non-work Slack community.
Don't be afraid to get creative with how you use Donut at your company — for example, some teams use Donut for culture-specific activities, like #ping-pong-roulette, where pairs are matched weekly for a ping pong game.
